What started out as a wonderful opportunity for the business turned out to be one of the most stressful projects in Meredith’s life.
As a blogger/accountant/partner in Rox.com, a successful blog her best friend Roxi started, Meredith is in the unfortunate position of working for her best friend. Yes, she is a partner, but since Roxi is the main brains behind the blog, Roxi still has the final say. So, when Roxi suggested a new idea for the blog—one that could generated thousands of new readers and possibly more media exposure—Meredith is the one assigned to go through with it.
The idea: For one week, date every male fantasy—the jock, rock star, billionaire, and stepbrother. Sounds like a dream come true, doesn’t it?
One by one, Meredith meets the dream men, and each dream gets completely shattered. Instead of meeting the men every women fantasized about, she meets obnoxious, delusional, and full-out dangerous creeps.
With only two men left to date, Meredith has little to no hope that the last two would outshine the others. She wanted to quit, but Roxi added in something that’s hard to refuse—the last two dates will be in Scotland, the top country in Meredith’s bucket list travel goals.
So off to Scotland she goes. Roxi said that “the stepbrother” stereotype will be the one to pick up Meredith, but little did Meredith know that the stepbrother was actually Kirby, Roxi’s stepbrother. The worst part is, Kirby still hasn’t forgiven her for what she did in junior high.
As you can see, this book has an interesting plot. The cover called to me, but the blurb completely won me over.
I liked this book, but it needs a few editing here and there. It bothered me that we never really found out what the incident in junior high was, and Meredith seemed to have flipped from hating Kirby to loving him in an instant.
I did enjoy the banter between the two, and Kirby is a sweetheart. He screams of virility, and that brogue of his is just dreamy (hey, I’m imagining Sam Heughan’s accent so yes). I also enjoyed reading about Scotland and its sights. Not enough to want to try haggis, but enough to crave for tattie scones. Yum.
